results coming up later on in this broadcast. joining me tonight is richard wolffe, msnbc political analyst. richard, we have a number of different things that all of a sudden mitt romney agrees with president obama on, but the one most glaring was afghanistan. will this have an impact in the final two weeks? >> well, let's just remember just how much of a back flip-flop he does last night. he's a guy that said no timeline, but he has a timeline without an end e date. suddenly we have an end date. normal candidates do not try and release new policies in debates. we have seen it now in three debates he's tried to do this. it's great that the president throws it out there and tries to point out these changes, last-minute reversals, but more than that, what we saw last night was bill clinton said strong and wrong, weak and right. last night we had weak and wrong against strong and right. it was the projection of weakness from mitt romney both on the substance and the way he was changing his policy that i think was the hardest piece of him. people don't understand the policy of foreign

called it right. richard wolffe said on our air on one occasion -- >> your air is cleaner, and purer and more -- >> he actually said he didn't think that there would be such a variation in terms of polling response and so on, because the sluggish recovery was baked into the psyche and therefore there wasn't going to be some great swing. also, the other thing to bear in mind, is that the number is just as liable to go up as it is to go down. and therefore, that in a way is ameliorated any potential impact as far as that number is concerned. richard wolffe said it on our air twice. >> i must be right then. you know. >> play it on our air. >> you did. >> we focus on the news and response to the news but actually, it was one of the clinton economic teams who told me, you know, as they were coming out of the '90s recession and hesitant about could they say they were out of recession, the economy really recovered, they came to the conclusion when approaching 1996 it didn't matter what they said. everyone is their own best economist. you know what's happening in your pocketbook and whether
